Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Situated in the grounds of Caerau Gardens, a charming and unusual bolt hole for a couple to stay in. With under-floor heating, a Sauna and a large screen and projector! The surroundings are stunning we even have a lake for fishing, swimming or perhaps kayaking.

You may also be interested in Tyn Llyn. More remote and with a newly added sauna plus other improvements in the most fabulous location by our lake. Do a search!

The space
Sauna and projector with large screen for films, it has a slot for dvds and vga connectivity for a laptop, we have some films. Very comfortable large mattress accessable by ladder above sauna and under a velux window to the stars. Everything you need in a compact and stylish space. BBQ and seating area plus a new deck with more chairs and table overlooking the view. There is even a sunken trampoline outside your door! If you would like a really remote farmhouse have a look at Tyn Llyn by our lake for 2 people or maybe children camping, we’re just putting a sauna in there! Or Tai Isaf if there are more of you, so remote you need to borrow our4x4 unless you have your own. For families of up to 6 but there is electricity and heating, certainly no neighbours!

Sarnau, Wales, United Kingdom

The area: - Bala is a fairly small town of about 2000 inhabitants but it has all you need in the way of shops and is about 5 miles from us. It has the lake railway and of course the lake. Sarah and Mark of bala water sports can help you out with that and all sorts of activities, see their web site. There is white water rafting on the Tryweryn too.

A lot of visitors do Snowdon, it is an obvious choice but there are lots of less crowded mountains too. Loads of other walking choices of course and a lot of people just stay and walk from the door.

We have 600 acres of hill, mountain and valley and our lake. On the land are stone circles and flint aged/Roman camp “Caer Euni”. The lake is 18 acres and good for swimming. There is a kayak you can borrow and course fishing for pike and perch, we can find you some tackle. We also have a couple of mountain bikes for you to borrow.

Elsewhere in Snowdonia there is so much to do that web searches are your best bet but lots of coast obviously and castles. People love “zip world” and “bounce below” they need booking.

Food: - the bryntirion pub in Llandderfel or really special food at the Tyddyn Llan or Pale Hall. Rhug isn’t bad either and there are good Indian restaurants in Bala and Corwen. We can do meals for you until about 6.30pm and in the season our cafe is open until 5 anyway.

I hope this gives you some ideas to research! Toby and Stephanie
